Huge thanks to POC for yet another amazing piece of protection for rugged riding on single-track. As I built my chops on the mountain bike over the course of this past summer, I decided to complement my POC Trabec Race Helmet with these knee pads for added protection. While I was initially hesitant about wearing knee pads (for fear that they would prove needlessly hot and cause irritation or chafing), I was pleasantly surprised to find, after more than a few long-haul rides, that these pads are perfectly comfortable and ergonomic. I have pretty small knees and calves, but the Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough is malleable and form-fitting...regardless of your form!
After making my way through a series of women's jerseys, I figured that I would venture into the terrain of men's wear to check out the options. I purchased the DAKINE Tour Jersey to satisfy my dream of a 3/4-length top for the bike, and I absolutely love this jersey. I don't have any complaints. It's certainly on the warmer side (I wouldn't wear it for a midday ascent in the sun), but it is loose-fitting, sweat-wicking, and 100% comfortable. Definitely a great addition to the mountain biking wardrobe!
The bottom line: this is a fantastic helmet from POC, confidence-inspiring in its construction, durabibility, venting system, and adjustment system. I own both the Trabec and the Trabec Race, and I like the added noggin coverage provided by the Race version. I'm relatively new to single-track ripping, and have certainly taken my fair share of rugged crashes in the past few months. I feel particularly safe wearing this helmets as I endure various trials and tribulations in the process of building my chops in the sport. This past summer in the Wasatch proved a scorcher, and the well-designed venting system kept me cool and happy on many a sizzling climb. Thanks, POC, for keeping me safe out there!
Fantastic jersey from Fox! This jersey has served me well on tons of rides this summer, from Park City, to Bend, OR, to Jackson, WY. I'm usually a size large in jerseys, and that was the case in this one. Fits long for maximum comfort while riding, with a "sticky" band around the bottom to ensure that it won't ride up and get tangled up with your hydration pack. Super comfy and attractive!
